Bridal Wedding Makeup: 15 Photos to Get You Inspired for the Big Day


When you’re planning a wedding, of course you think about the dress (empire silhouette or mermaid?), the shoes (they need to be able to take you from the walk down the aisle to the first dance — and every dance after that), and even the hairdo (you know if you’re more of an updo type of bride or loose waves are more your thing). But what about the makeup?

After all, you want to be happy with your wedding photos for the rest of your life (sorry, of-the-moment ombre lipstick and neon eyeliner), and you want to feel your very best. It’s your day — the last thing you should have to worry about is whether or not your eyeliner is smudged or your face looks shiny. Here are our favorite bridal makeup looks that are easy to recreate, will make anyone look like a beautiful blushing bride, and are classic enough to stand the test of time.
